Officials with the Thunder Bay Police Service say drug enforcement officers, assisted by the guns and gangs unit and uniformed patrol, conducted two searches Wednesday.

As a result of those searches, police were able to seize about 1,300 grams of cocaine, 1,800 grams of marijuana and 500 grams of hashish.

The street value of the drugs is estimated to be about $177,400.

Police also found about $1,600 in Canadian cash.


Accused Sean William Leiville, 30, of Thunder Bay was arrested and taken into custody.
